How do I Apply?

Students must complete a Student Works application.  The application for the Fall 2018/Winter 2019 Student Works program will be available by September 1, 2018.

Students must demonstrate that they have financial need; meaning, that they don't have enough resources to meet their educational expenses. In addition, for each job the student is applying to, a personalized cover letter and resume are required (but only one Student Works application). Do not apply for Student Works positions directly to job supervisors.
